West Orange Probate Lawyer

Administering an Estate in Essex County, NJ

It can be stressful and emotionally draining to handle a loved one's estate after he or she has recently passed, but The Law Office of Alice Beirne can walk you through the trust or estate administration process. If you have been selected as an executor in a will, as an administrator by the Surrogate court or as a trustee of a trust, I can help you honor your loved one's last wishes as accurately as possible. In addition to helping you collect, assess and distribute probate assets, I can represent you in estate litigation should any problems arise in the process. With more than 32 years of experience, I thoroughly understand New Jersey probate law and am well-equipped to assist you with a variety of matters that occur in the probate or administration of an estate.

Estate Litigation in New Jersey

Did a late loved one omit you entirely from his or her will with no explanation? If you believe that this radical change does not reflect your family member's true wishes, I can help you contest the will and pursue your rightful inheritance. Whether you think that a family member exercised undue influence over your loved one or that the executor of their estate is guilty of an abuse of fiduciary duty, my firm is prepared to aggressively represent your best interests in a variety of estate litigation matters.

Probate cases often involve family members and close friends, which can make matters even more difficult. Sometimes just the presence of an attorney can calm tempers, and I am prepared to negotiate with both sides to seek an amicable situation. Pursuing a solution outside of the courtroom is usually preferable because it is often more budget-friendly and less time-consuming than litigation. If we cannot negotiate a settlement, I am certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a civil trial attorney who is well-equipped to aggressively represent your rights and interests in the courtroom.

Proven General Litigation Counsel

In addition to providing caring and experienced legal counsel for probate cases, my firm represents clients in a variety of personal injury and workers' compensation cases. I understand that the injuries you sustained have serious impact upon your life and family, which is why I seek the maximum amount of compensation for my clients. I strive to obtain the best settlements for my clients from their insurance providers, employers, or any other related party and can zealously represent your rights under premises liability, medical malpractice, workers' compensation, and personal injury law. In addition to representing injury cases, I handle business law issues ranging from contract disputes to company dissolutions.

Experience You Can Trust in West Orange

In my years of practice I have earned numerous accolades due to my knowledge and experience, as well as my dedication to the best interests of my clients. I am AV® rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, which means that my peers consider my legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability, legal experience and ethics to be excellent. Additionally, I have been selected for inclusion in the list of New Jersey Super Lawyers® since 2005, an honor bestowed upon less than 5% of the lawyers in the state.
